The Pottertons worker of 30 years was ‘volunteered’ for the post by his late wife Eileen and initially was assistant mace bearer. This entailed carrying the ceremonial mace in front of the Mayor of Warwick at all official events, rain or shine.

Derek also saw service with the Royal Navy in Korea, Malaya and the Far East and because of this, is Chairman of the Royal Naval Association in Warwick. He has also volunteered at the Iris Lees Day Centre.

President of the Warwick Rotary Club, Jon Wassall presented Derek with his award which includes a cheque for a charity of his choice – and expressed his admiration for his service to the community of Warwick.
